As some of you know, I am about through my first trimester with my second child. This pregnancy has been quite different than my first one, with morning/all day sickness, exhaustion and a 2 1/2 year old. It has been challenging to deal with the physical aspects as well as the emotional, with thoughts of not wanting or not know how I’m going to love another baby. The first few months of having Aiden were hard and the thought of going through that again was not appealing. But I’m happy to say that I’m feeling a bit different at the moment.
Aiden has been so wonderful, letting me take naps even though he has given his up. He plays very well by himself and lets me sleep for about an hour before he tells me it’s time to be awake. My husband is a dream helping me and not judging me every step of the way. And now that my class is over, my husband is on vacation and I seem to be on the mend, I am so happy for the holidays. Never mind I just got my Christmas cards finished and sent out today. Who cares that I have all the wrapping to do? And as for the tree in the garage, it will be decorated before our Christmas Eve party. I’m feeling good about he holidays, seeing family and sharing our wonderful news with them.
We decided to wait and spring it on my family on Christmas Eve. I am out of my first trimester, so no worries there and we will be seeing everyone at once which makes it special. We are going to have Aiden announce that he is going to be a big brother next year, so it will be fun to see their reaction.
I just wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday season and a very healthy and glorious new year.
